A quick little update

Remember how I told you that I had a raging Pinterest addiction that was hurting the ones I love?  Yeah, that hasn't changed so much.  I did go on vacation to Cincinnati (had an awesome time-pics next week, I promise!), and didn't have a lot of computer time, so I actually went five whole days without pinning, but once I got back from vacation, I was like "five minutes won't hurt".

But last night I was talking to my friend Sarah (she's the new media specialist I mentioned here) and she told me that she had to stop the pinning because she kept thinking "if only I had this mustard colored cardigan, my whole wardrobe would be complete", but then she'd see a cool outfit with leopard loafers and it would all be over.  So she stopped pinning to stop buying unnecessary clothes.  I know what she means.  I have enough clothes (you read that right, Doug, I have enough clothes), but you see all this cool stuff and you just want it!

So, Pinterest Challenge Update.  I'm challenging myself not to go on Pinterest!  Instead if I get free time or need a break, I'll check out a book blog.  Despite having my own book blog, I've strayed from my favorite blogs like Shelftalker, A Chair, a Fireplace, and a Tea Cozy, and my favorite, Awful Library Books.  I'll still check out my favorite home blog, (Young House Love) and slice of life blogs (Bower Power and Nice Girl Notes) but no more fashion blogs.  Because you can have enough clothes, but you can't have enough books!

Speaking of not having enough books, I was reminded again last night of how badly I need to read The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.  My non-YA reading friend Katie loved it, and our lovely book club host, Erin, loved it too, and these are ladies that read real, grown-up books, so it's that good!  I bought it this morning and went for the hardcover because if it's that amazing, I'm going to need to loan it out and a Kindle edition just will not do.  Too bad I won't get it until Tuesday.  I could really use the instant gratification of having it right now.  My Kindle is loaded with Code Name Verity, Beta, Feed, and The Scorpio Races, so I have plenty to read, I just have to decide how I'm feeling.

Have a great weekend everyone!  I'll be hanging out at the Illinois College Alumni tent and singing along at the Miranda Lambert concert.  Hope your weekend is just as fun.

Happy Reading!
